:

1st Order of Business:

An issue earlier in the month arose as Wells Fargo closed the bank account due to missing paperwork. They have reached out to the previous leadership instead of notifying any of the current leadership for the paperwork. The issue with Wells Fargo has been resolved as WF printed a check in the local branch allowing us to deposit the funds into the account. New bank cards would have to be issued. Money was withdrawn from Paypal allowing us to pay all current bills. Money wise we have 1090.27 in Paypal with 1000 moving to WF account, 61 in WF now, and 2819.48 in the check WF issued.

2nd Order of Business:

Due to the addition of new equipment all members would require a member to continue operations without issue. All new member and previous member would need to sign a waiver to use the space. Previous membership would have 3 months to sign the waiver before their key fob would be turned off to get their attention. To start off we would use hard copies to sign and explore online signatures for next meeting. This would be required for anyone to use the woodworking tools, with the exception of the laser cutter, effective Saturday. For the next goal, there will then be an approval process for each individual tools once the process is established.

Vote:

Effective 9-15-18 all new members and previous members will be required to sign the waiver. Previous membership would have 90 days after 12-14-18 to keep their access to the space. Failure to sign the waiver would result in their key fob being deactivated until the waiver is signed.

5 out of 5 board members voted in favor.

3rd Order of Business:

Thermostat would be worked on to prevent tampering. SalesForce is still being worked on.

4th Order of Business:

Neil volunteered to be an area host for the woodworking shop. The Lab would need to actively search for volunteers for Area Hosts.

5th Order of Business:

Aaron Gross aka ButtonMan will be awarded a membership point for his Chess meetup. Also, the lab will authorize spending $100 to purchase a chess set for the meetup.

6th Order of Business:

Brandon suggested using membership points to get snacks. Brandon volunteered keeping track of membership points until Salesforce is activated.

7th Order of Business:

Volunteers are needed for FenCon on September 21st-23rd. Everything is covered functionally but any volunteers would greatly help.
